On the 18th January, the Y5/6 Football team took part in the Premier League Schools Cup.
They played 3 games, winning two and losing one. You can read match reports from each game below.
The team played incredibly well. They played their best football of the school year so far, setting them up well for the tournaments to come.
Kieran made a number of good saves, staying alert throughout. Owen and Olivia marshalled the defence and made a number of strong challenges, helping the team secure two clean sheets. Daniel and Jamie never stopped running, dropping back to support the defence, as well as pushing on to support attacks.
Alex showed some nice touches, as well as helping himself to three goals. Meanwhile, Jude demonstrated great strength and composure, helping himself to a double when surging on from midfield. And Taylor never stopped running, using his pace to seal a hat-trick in game 2.
Overall, an enjoyable afternoon with some terrific football.
St Augustine's 3-0 Hemlington Hall
Alex got the team off to a flyer, showing nice feet to work himself an opening and finding the bottom corner within the opening minute.
The lead was doubled after 5 minutes, when after a rare venture forward, Owen showed good movement to get the end of Daniel's corner and hammer home.
Alex grabbed his second of the match, showing great composure to find the bottom corner and seal the win!
St Augustine's 8-0 Springfield
Again, the team came darting out of the blocks. Taylor showed great awareness to flick the ball home after just 20 seconds. He quickly followed up with two well taken strikes to seal his hat-trick.
Jamie added the fourth, dusting himself down to tuck away a penalty after being tripped. Jude put on his 'magic hat', coming on to hammer home the fifth, before looping a header over the keeper for his second of the game.
Further goals from Owen and Alex sealed a great win after a great team performance.
St Augustine's 0-4 Wheatlands
The team were incredibly unlucky in the final game, which was closer than the score line suggests. In the opening minute, the post denied them the lead following good work by Alex and a testing cross by Owen.
Shortly after, Wheatlands grabbed the lead and as the team chased the game and the goal needed to level, they added a further three goals.
